    4.1

    Swissport Employee, May 2021

  • Best thing

    Quiet months - often paid to sit and watch TV
    Busy months - paid to work-out
    Great friendships can easilly be formed with some genuine folk, 6 on 3 off shift pattern starting on a late finishing on an early, get an equal mix of working with others or on your own

    Worst thing

    Quiet months - boring
    Busy months - pressured to work harder and faster
    Lack of care towards safety, high level management don't give a hoot but like to give the impression they do, constantly changing your shifts, constantly having to check rotas that you've got the minimum 11 hour daily break between shifts, often seems the left hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing between the teams sometimes
